and GASARAKI TV
Anime Expo 2011: New license and project announcements

GRIMES, Iowa, July 1, 2011 – Anime producer and distributor Right Stuf, Inc. and its Nozomi Entertainment division made several announcements during their July 1st panel at Anime Expo 2011 in Los Angeles, California. Right Stuf President and C.E.O. Shawne Kleckner revealed the licenses for the “original” DIRTY PAIR OVA (direct-to-video) episodes and Project Eden movie; the DIRTY PAIR FLASH OVA series; the remastered release of the MARTIAN SUCCESSOR NADESICO television series, its theatrical sequel and its GEKIGANGER III spin-off OVA; and the GASARAKI television series. The presentation also provided new details about ongoing projects, including Nozomi’s remastered editions of the REVOLUTIONARY GIRL UTENA television series.


Original DIRTY PAIR OVAs + Movie, DIRTY PAIR FLASH OVAs

Right Stuf and Nozomi Entertainment announced additional installments of the DIRTY PAIR anime franchise – including the classic Dirty Pair OVAs and movie, as well as the 1990s series DIRTY PAIR FLASH – will be released in 2012.

The adventures of “Lovely Angels” Kei and Yuri continue in the Affair of Nolandia OVA, the Project Eden movie, the 10-episode OVA sequel to the TV series, and the Flight 005 Conspiracy OVA. These extensions of the original Dirty Pair television series will be released across two value-priced DVD sets. They feature production by Sunrise (Gundam, Outlaw Star, The Vision of Escaflowne, Cowboy Bebop) and Studio Nue (Crusher Joe, Macross).
  • Nozomi Entertainment’s releases of the OVA installments (the OVA series, Affair of Nolandia and Flight 005 Conspiracy) will feature remastered video from the Japanese DVD release.
  • The upcoming release of the 10-episode OVA series will include the previously released English dub, Japanese audio, and English-language subtitles and on-screen translations.
  • The new release of Project Eden, Affair of Nolandia and Flight 005 Conspiracy will include both the ADV Films and Streamline Pictures English-language dubs, plus Japanese audio and English-language subtitles and on-screen translations.
Dirty Pair Flash is a 16-episode, direct-to-video and alternate universe series, starring younger versions of Kei and Yuri. The entirety of Dirty Pair Flash will be released as one, value-priced DVD set, which will feature remastered video, along with the previously released English audio, plus Japanese audio and English-language subtitles and on-screen translations.

The Dirty Pair’s literary adventures – written by Haruka Takachiho (creator of Crusher Joe) and illustrated by Yoshikazu Yasuhiko (character design for Mobile Suit Gundam, Gundam Unicorn) – have won two Seiun Awards for science fiction and inspired an array of media, including anime, radio series and English-language comics. The first two novels, The Great Adventure of the Dirty Pair and The Dirty Pair Strike Again, are published for English-speaking audiences by Dark Horse.

Visit comingsoon.rightstuf.com for information about these upcoming releases and dirtypair.rightstuf.com to read an exclusive interview with Dirty Pair creator Haruka Takachiho, to view the TV series trailer, and to order both parts of the DIRTY PAIR television series (available now from Nozomi Entertainment).


Remastered MARTIAN SUCCESSOR NADESICO
TV Series,
Plus Movie and the North American Debut of the GEKIGANGER III OVA


Right Stuf’s Nozomi Entertainment announced its license for the MARTIAN SUCCESSOR NADESICO television series and its sequel motion picture (The Prince of Darkness), as well as its spin-off GEKIGANGER III OVA. This will be the first time Gekiganger III will be available to North American audiences.

The 26-episode series, its movie and its spin-off will be released in a complete, value-priced DVD collection. It will include remastered video from the Japanese DVD release (TV series and Gekiganger III), the previously released English-language dub (TV series and film), plus Japanese audio, English-language subtitles and on-screen translations, and on-disc extras.

Martian Successor Nadesico is a science-fiction comedy directed by Tatsuo Sato (Shingu: Secret of the Stellar Wars, Shigofumi, Stellvia), with character designs by Keiji Gotoh (Gatekeepers 21, Sorcerer Hunters) and animation production by XEBEC (The Third: The Girl With the Blue Eye, Fafner). Martian Successor Nadesico: The Prince of Darkness won the fan-voted Animage Grand Prix award in 1998.

The Earth, its moon and its Martian colonies are under alien attack! The Terran military is powerless to stop the invasion, so the arms manufacturer Nergal builds and deploys its own space cruiser in a desperate attempt to save the Earth. However, due to a shortage of military personnel, the battleship Nadesico’s crew is a bit unorthodox. Could a contingent of misfits and otaku – including a reluctant cook-turned-pilot, a ditzy general’s daughter and a child genius – be mankind’s last hope?

Visit comingsoon.rightstuf.com for more information about the series.


GASARAKI

Right Stuf and Nozomi Entertainment also announced its license for GASARAKI, a 25-episode television series created and directed by Ryousuke Takahashi (Armored Trooper Votoms, Blue Gender, GaoGaiGar, Phoenix) and planned and produced by Sunrise (Mobile Suit Gundam, Dirty Pair, Cowboy Bebop). The series – which combines mecha and political intrigue with mysticism – is currently scheduled for 2012, as a value-priced DVD release, with Japanese audio, English subtitles and on-screen translations, its previously released English-language dub, and on-disc extras.

The flames of war are fanned in the Middle East, as two secretive forces unleash their latest weapons of mass destruction. But in a world where giant robots are real, the most dangerous weapon of all lies buried within a human mind. Yushiro, the fourth son of the mysterious and powerful Gowa family, finds himself at the center of events that may change the future of mankind forever!


Visit comingsoon.rightstuf.com for more information about the series.

FUNimation Entertainment Acquires Additional Rights for [C]

Flower Mound, Texas (July 1, 2011) – Not long after partnering with Fuji Television for the exclusive online simulcast of the series: "[C] – Control – The Money and Soul of Possibility," FUNimation Entertainment has acquired additional rights for distribution of the original series in the U.S. Included in those rights are those of home entertainment, broadcast, and digital.

“[C]” is produced by Tatsunoko Production and directed by Kenji Nakamura (“Mononoke,“ “Ayakashe”, “Flying Trapeze”).

About [C]

The Japanese government was rescued from the brink of financial collapse by the Sovereign Wealth Fund. For its citizens, however, life has not improved, and unemployment, crime, suicide, and despair are rampant. Kimimaro, raised by his maternal grandmother after the disappearance of his father and the death of his mother, is a scholarship student whose only dream is to avoid all this and live a stable life. One day, however, he meets a man who offers him a large sum of money if he'll agree to pay it back. From then on his fate is radically altered as he's drawn into a mysterious realm known as "The Financial District."

Visit the official website at www.funimation.com/c-control.
FUNimation to Release Risque Romantic Comedy B Gata H Kei

Flower Mound, TX (July 1, 2011) – FUNimation Entertainment announced today that it has acquired the U.S. rights to distribute the anime series “B Gata H Kei – Yamada’s First Time.” These rights include home entertainment, broadcast, digital and merchandise.

This risque romantic comedy, from director Yusuke Yamamoto ("Sgt Frog”, “Welcome to the NHK”), is based on the manga series of the same name published by Shueisha. Both follow Yamada, a boy-crazy school girl with distracting daydreams about future bedmates – but before she can get this saucy sex life underway, she realizes she first needs to lose her virginity! She knows to whom she will bestow this prize: her classmate Kosuda. However, a successful seduction of Kosuda is more difficult than this lusty teen had counted on.

FUNimation will release the 12-episode series on DVD and Blu-ray in 2012.

For more information, go to www.funimation.com/b-gata-h-kei-yamadas-first-time.
FUNimation Entertainment Secures Baka and Test 2 and OVA’s

Flower Mound, TX (July 1, 2011) -- FUNimation® Entertainment has acquired digital, broadcast, home video and merchandise rights to the second season of the fantasy anime series “Baka and Test -- Summon the Beasts” (known in Japan as Baka to Test to Shokanju), as well as two OVA episodes, from Media Factory. The agreement also gives the American anime leader exclusive rights to the online simulcast of the series in the U.S., just days after the new episodes air in Japan starting this month.

FUNimation will deliver these high-quality, free, original Japanese dialogue accompanied by English subtitles, streaming episodes of “Baka and Test – Summon the Beasts 2” via www.funimation.com.

FUNimation will release the second season and the OVA’s on DVD and Blu-ray in 2012.
FUNimation Entertainment to Launch Cat Planet Cuties

Flower Mound, TX (July 1, 2011) – FUNimation Entertainment announced today that it has acquired the rights to distribute the anime series “Cat Planet Cuties” (Known in Japan as “Asobi ni Ikuyo!”) in North America. These rights include home entertainment, broadcast, and digital.

The sci-fi comedy, directed by Youichi Ueda ("Heaven’s Lost Property”), is based on a light novel series published by Media Factory in which an ordinary high school freshman named Kio must protect a cat-eared alien girl from fanatical alien worshipers and government secret agents. Of course, it doesn’t help that this cat planet cutie has fallen for Kio and determined he is the boy for her.

FUNimation will release the 12-episode series on DVD and Blu-ray in 2012.

Flower Mound, TX (July 1, 2011) - FUNimation(R) Entertainment today announced that it will distribute the futuristic action anime "Deadman Wonderland" in North America in 2012. In an agreement with Kadokawa Shoten Co., Ltd., FUNimation will have the home entertainment, broadcast, digital and merchandise rights for the 12-episode series ending its Japanese broadcast run this month.
An adaptation of Jinsei Kataoka and Kazuma Kondou's Deadman Wonderland manga, the dark story is set after the destruction of most of Tokyo by an earthquake and centers on Ganta Igarashi, a middle school student framed for the murder of his classmates. Igarashi is sentenced to Deadman Wonderland, a bizarre brutal and bloody privately operated prison that is one part incarceration and one part public spectacle – a thoroughly twisted tourist destination!

The series is animated by Manglobe and directed by Koichi Hatsumi.

FUNimation will stream the series via www.funimation.com this year.

I'm really hoping for a Blu-Ray release on this. In fact, if it only got a DVD release then I would not consider it cool. I would consider it pathetic.

Also, I think it's worth mentioning that Song of Saya (same writer as Puella Magica) was also announced at AX.

Madoka needs Blu Ray. I'd be shocked if it wasn't released.

Directed by Naohito Takahashi (Berserk, Steel Angel Kurumi,) RAY also references the classic Osamu Tezuka (Astroboy, Kimba the White Lion) series Black Jack and follows the lead of that series in examining the complex ethical conflicts brought on by modern medical science, with a particular focus on the black market for human organs.

If you have enough money, you can buy anything. So why wait for an organ you need to become available? Raised to be harvested for parts, Ray had already lost her eyes when renegade surgeon Black Jack rescued her. Now, ten years later, she has grown up to be a surgeon herself. And thanks to the unique artificial eyes she received as replacements, she has with a reputation for performing incredible medical operations that no one else could even attempt. But unknown to any but a select few, her surgical endeavors are only part of a greater mission: to discover what happened the other children she was raised with, and to find the men who stole the eyes she was born with and to bring them to justice. Vengeance wields a scalpel and sees with X-ray eyes in RAY – THE COMPLETE COLLECTION!

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
SENTAI FILMWORKS ANNOUNCES LICENSE OF CROISÉE IN A FOREIGN LABYRINTH ~
THE ANIMATION

Houston, TX, July 21, 2011: Sentai Filmworks today announced their acquisition of the new hit series Croisée in a Foreign Labyrinth ~ The Animation. Based on the popular manga by Hinata Takeda, the 12 episode series is a unique East meets West drama set in 19th century France. Script supervision for the historical drama is being handled by the legendary Junichi Sato (Sailor Moon, Aria,) with character designs by Hideki Inoue (Grenadier) and direction from Kenji Yasuda (Noein.)

Revolutions always wreck mayhem and carnage, and the Industrial Revolution is no different as it engulfs Europe, leaving outmoded businesses and millions stripped of their traditional ways of life forever as its casualties. Cultural Revolutions are no less devastating, and as the 19th century comes to an end, young Yune has seen her native Japan shaken to its very core as the walls separating it from the Western world have finally crumbled, sending an entire nation on a quest for a new identity. But like the Phoenix, the new is inevitably born from the ashes of the old. And when Yune she decides to accompany her new acquaintance, Oscar, to Paris where his family’s metal declining shop is barely making ends meet in the face of its new competition, she may just be setting a new wave of changes into motion. Could Yune be the critical spark needed to rekindle the fires in both the hearths and minds of the Enseignes du Roy? As old worlds come to an end, new beginnings will be forged in Croisée in a Foreign Labyrinth ~ The Animation.

Digital distribution of Croisée in a Foreign Labyrinth ~ The Animation will begin through The Anime Network on Tuesday, July 26, with a home video release of the 12 episodes to follow next year.

LICENSE OF HEAVEN’S MEMO PAD

Houston, TX, July 22, 2011: Sentai Filmworks announced today their acquisition of Heaven’s Memo Pad, the amazing new series which merges an exploration of the growing phenomenon of social dropouts in Japan with a high school detective series. Based on the highly successful series of light novels by Hikaru Sugii, Heaven’s Memo Pad is directed by Katushi Sakurabi (Gunparade March, Lunar Legend Tsukihime) using character designs by Keichi Sano based upon originals by Mel Kishida and script supervision by Seishi Minakami (Paprika, Daphne in the Brilliant Blue.)

Narumi Fujishima is NOT your typical high school student; he’s never really fit in and has been becoming increasingly more isolated from his fellow classmates. But he’s not alone, and when Ayaka, the sole member of the Gardening Club, introduces him to the reclusive girl who lives above the Ramen shop, Narumi enters a whole new secret world. Alice is a NEET, someone who is Not Employed, being Educated or in Training, but as Narumi quickly discovers, that doesn’t mean that she does nothing all day. In between tending to her small army of stuffed bears, Alice is an expert hacker and… has skills that suddenly become vital to Narumi when a new illegal narcotic invades his school and takes away someone important to him. Now it’s a deadly race as the strange but elite team of oddball associates that Alice assembles from her NEET acquaintances races to locate and destroy the source of the deadly drug. And in the middle of it all, Narumi will find his life changing forever in Heaven’s Memo Pad!

Digital distribution of Heaven’s Memo Pad will begin through The Anime Network on Sunday, July 31, with a home video release of the 12 episodes to follow next year.
